The EVOC Red Book

The online directory to find third sector Organisations, and their services across Edinburgh


Directory of local groups/projects who are offering specific support during the current COVID-19 pandemic »

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Viewpoint’s care homes provide 24-hour nursing care, as well as specialist care for people living with dementia. Our registered nursing team and trained carers pride themselves in providing excellent care tailored to your individual needs.

Situated in quiet residential areas of Edinburgh, our three homes offer a safe, caring and comfortable environment for those requiring frequent support and specialised nursing care. We have a wide range of services available to residents who make their home with us.

At each of our homes residents receive a personal plan and can therefore be confident that support, care needs and personal preferences will be met. Our dedicated team is committed to ensuring a continuously high standard of person-centred care.

Activity is important to us all. Social activities and events are organised by our Activities Coordinators, who make sure a varied programme is in place to suit the interests of our residents. In a typical week these could include the gardening club, film nights, a visit to the theatre, reminiscence groups, live music performances or an afternoon in our Craft Cafe.
